Sacramento County Names New Ag Commissioner

Tomorrow the Sacramento County Executive will recommend the appointment of Juli Jensen as Agricultural Commissioner and Director of Weights and Measures to the Board of Supervisors. If approved, the appointment will be effective on October 13, 2011.


“We think Julie will make a great addition to our team,” said Brad Hudson, County Executive. “After a statewide search, we’re confident she is the right combination of experience, leadership and advocacy.”

Jensen has more than 29 years of experience enforcing agricultural and/or weights and measures laws and regulations. During this past year, Jensen has served as the Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer of El Dorado and Alpine counties. In addition, she worked under contract as Sacramento County’s Interim Agricultural Commissioner and Director of Weights and Measures since June 27, 2011.

Prior to her current position, Jensen worked for the Sacramento County Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer’s Office for twenty-nine years, including 17 years as the Deputy Agricultural Commissioner. Her responsibilities included pesticide use enforcement, the agricultural burn program, the agricultural and urban pesticide hazardous materials program, the automated point of sale program (known as the scanner program), Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter treatments, wine grape testing, and detection trapping. Jensen has also served on various state committees including the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the Department of Pesticide Regulation and the California Air Resources Board.

Ms. Jensen earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agronomy from the University of California, Davis and has an Agricultural Commissioner license and a Sealer of Weights and Measures license. She currently resides in Sacramento.
